One bottle of this wonderful Meursault Genevrieres Cuvee des Pierres Premier Cru 2006, the special cuvee from 50+ year old vines that see 100% new wood for 12 months and one year oak thereafter until bottling. From the beautiful vineyards of Domaine Latour-Giraud.

Tasting note

"   Not surprisingly, this is much like the Genevrières with a touch of oak influence to the naturally spicy floral and high-toned orchard fruit aromas before giving way to textured, sappy and almost painfully intense full-bodied flavors brimming with both dry extract and ample minerality on the hugely long and impeccably balanced finish. This is a really lovely wine that possesses everything it needs to deliver a first rate drinking experience with a few years in bottle. The best of the Latour '06s and highly recommended."  93 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com

Domaine Latour-Giraud

Charles and Maxime, the 2 grandfathers Giraud and Latour, gave their names to the top quality Meursault Villages from the Domaine Latour-Giraud. Jean-Pierre is known in the region as one of Meursault’s best winemakers. The estate underwent a dramatic revival when he took over in the 1990’s. The village wines are aged in one-quarter to one-third new oak barrels. Jean-Pierre Latour’s wines are classic white Burgundies: intense and concentrated, stylish and powerful, layered and balanced.

The Latour-Giraud Meursault combine lemon-pear-quince-citrus fruits with the characteristic mineral qualities of the soil and layers of sweet vanilla oak and toast.

Jean-Pierre Latour ferments only free-run juice with wild, natural yeasts. The premier cru wines are aged in 40-70% new barrels depending on the character of the wine and the vintage. The wines are kept on their lees as long as possible and racking is kept to a minimum. They are fined, but not filtered, and bottled by hand. Jean-Pierre carefully monitors each wine and bottles each when it is ready over the course of six months.
